Big Brother’s Ben bows out

In what can be considered a major turning point of the game Big Brother favorite Ben was evicted last night.

The 32 year old former flight attendant from Brisbane Ben was evicted from the Big Brother House.  There were more votes to save this week than in any other eviction this year. The results were:

Ben                 16.2%

Ed                   16.9%

Drew               17.0%

Tim                  17.8%

Tahan             32.1%


Likened by fans on twitter as the “Ricki-Lee moment” of Big Brother, Ben’s eviction created shock waves as fans voiced their opinions on social media throughout the night.

Walking on stage to a standing ovation from the sell-out crowd at the Dreamworld studio, Ben took his time to thank the audience as he made his way to Sonia.  He said, “this experience has been one of the most momentous life changing experiences of my life.”

When asked by Sonia about twitter gossip claiming Ben was an actor, he said, “I’m just Ben from Brisbane.  I used to be a flight attendant. That’s it.” Describing his complicated relationship with Tim, Ben said, “I think Tim’s hard to like but he’s also hard to dislike as well.  He does it on purpose to protect himself from getting close to other people… he’s such a pain and he does press your buttons.”

On discovering that he was nominated by friends Jade and Drew for strategic reasons, Ben said, “The smiling assassins!  I’m surprised by that.”

On tonight’s Live nominations   Madaline and Boog will be facing  facing their first time nominating and being nominated. Tune in to see who is nominated, and to witness Mikkayla’s explosive Superpower.
